Come join us on December 24th at 7:00 pm for an evening of lessons and carols as we celebrate the birth of Jesus!
Guest harpist Melissa Gallant will be with us on December 21st (the Sunday before Christmas) during our Sunday morning worship service. Come worship with us and enjoy some beautiful harp music.
On December 17th at 6:30 PM we will meet together in the fellowship hall, and then go caroling in the neighborhood around the church. After caroling in the neighborhood, we will enjoy some refreshments and warm up in the fellowship hall. Then, we will go caroling with a couple shut-ins.
Sunday December 14th our choir will perform their Christmas Cantata during our worship service, which begins at the regular 9:30 am time. Then, at 11:00 am we will share a meal together in the fellowship hall.
The Journal & Courier recently ran a major article covering our partnership with University Church: http://www.jconline.com/story/life/faith/2014/09/06/university-church-finds-new-home-first-baptist/15217627/
University Church will start having services at First Baptist Church Sunday mornings on September 14th, 2014 at 11:00 am. The hope of both churches is that this will not be a temporary situation, but rather it might be a way for us to help each other in ministry and join together to do more than we could do apart. First Baptist will be moving their Sunday morning worship up to 9:30 am.
Not only will the two congregations share a space, but we will work together to serve the community.
You’re invited to come and join us for our 7th annual Sidewalk Chalk Festival September 3-7, 2014! Come and pick out a square to draw on or just observe the art. The event is free! If you or someone you know would like to participate, we recommend that you send an e-mail to email@example.com to reserve a square of sidewalk.
Every participant will recieve a free t-shirt and can ring the First Baptist Church bell!
The Sidewalk Chalk Festival takes place on the sidewalks around First Baptist Church.
It was another great year for Worship in the Street!
